The Ontario Tower, located in Blackwall in the former docklands area of east London, is a residential housing block in the New Providence Wharf development on the north side of the River Thames. It was built by property development company Ballymore and designed by architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. The Ontario Tower is a primarily glass and aluminium design. Its roof is sloped, with a blue LED-rimmed elliptical profile
The New Providence Wharf is a residential community of more than a 1000 luxury homes. The tallest building in this residential development is the 31 storeys Ontario Tower which is especially recognizable by its elliptical roof. Because of the elliptical design, many apartments feature curved, floor-to-ceiling sheets of glass offering panoramic views over the riverside. The apartments in the Ontario Tower feature great views over the Thames River, O2 arena and surrounding skyline.
Because of the sloped roof of the Ontario Tower we have to come up with a solution to place the roofcar and building maintenance unit. We have created a rail traject in the shape of the building and used a traversing roof car for facade access duties.
